September has not been a good month for my column as I have missed two different weeks. So, I’ll try to do better, but no promises.
This is the last day of the month. According to the calendar, fall has arrived. Finally our weather seems to reflect the correct season. Hopefully we will continue with cool weather and Hurricane Ian avoids us as predicted.
Congratulations to the Central JV football team on a perfect season. This has been homecoming week for the schools with different dress-up days. Good luck to the team tonight! Congratulations to all the young ladies that were nominated for homecoming queen and her court. Also, congratulations to the one that gets crowned!
October starts fall festivals around the area, along with trips to the pumpkin patches. No church news this week other than all are open for business, so plan to attend on Sunday.
This past week as I was driving, “Pray on the Little Days” by Mark Bishop came on the radio. It may have been around for a while, but it was the first time I had heard it. The part of the lyrics that got my attention was “…let God be God in the best of times, and He’ll be God when you’re going through the worst of times…. when you need God to be there on the bigger days, pray on the little days.”
So many times the only time we reach out to God is on those bigger or worst days. However, we don’t need to wait until things are bad or going wrong to call on Him.
The Bible verses this brings to mind are Proverbs 3:5-6 which reads, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
All your heart and all your ways, not partly or sometimes, but always. That is what He wants, our entire life. Praise Him for all the little things, as well as big. Ask Him for guidance daily, not just when things go wrong.
Continue to keep those who have lost loved ones recently in your prayers. There are several in our community that are not feeling well, so please pray for their healing in God’s will. God knows their names and needs. Until next week, take care and be joyful!
Organizations in the area, as well as churches, I need your events! If your family has some news or an event to share, please contact me. I would prefer text to 334-414-7147 or emails to firstname.lastname@example.org, but phone calls will be fine, too. If you don’t get me when you call, be sure to leave a message.
